WHY THIS MATTERS

What You'll Learn:

  • With the shrinking demand for office space and increasing interest in downtown living, how are developers creating new life for old office buildings in downtown Chicago?
  • What makes a building a potential candidate for repositioning?
  • What are the most compelling reasons to choose adaptive reuse for multifamily versus new multifamily construction?
  • What are some of the most unusual and creative building transformations in and around Chicago?
  • How are owners and developers reinventing their office spaces to help attract the workforce back to the office?
  • What is the process for adaptive reuse for historic buildings and landmarks?

 

 

How You'll Do More Business

Repositioning is booming in Chicago, a trend that began before the pandemic, with converting old buildings, such as former offices, warehouses, and retail stores into desirable multifamily units. Chicago has the second-highest number of office-to-apartment conversions in the country, placing it among the top cities in office redevelopment.
